    Welcome to Off the Cuff, the City of London Police podcast.
    Here at the City of London Police, we have a history of trying new things, so we’ve recorded a series of interviews with officers and staff from across the force to shed some light on what goes on behind the scenes at a busy, modern police force.
    EPISODE FIVE – C.H. Rolph – who was he, why does he matter, and why is there a hall named after him at the City of London Police?
    In our fifth and final episode of our debut season, we change course to take an in-depth look at the fascinating life and career of former City of London Police officer C.H. Rolph, known as Cecil Hewitt to family and friends, who reached the rank of Chief Inspector during his 25 years policing the Square Mile in the 1920s, 30s and 40s.
    Featuring special audio from a 1970s BBC interview, we invite you to find out more about this intriguing piece of forgotten history from the City of London Police, with a closer examination of a man who led an extraordinary double-life as both a police officer and journalist, before going on to become a successful campaigner for social change.
